Nadia and Jean-Paul were married June 22, 2019, under the hot summer sun of Gironde at the town hall and the church of Begles.
The bride and groom called me, Mélissa Wilpotte, wedding planner in Bordeaux, to make their wonderful day a day full of happiness, joy and love.
It is with deep gratitude and a real pleasure that I want to share the story of their wedding day!
Getting married at Château Gassies in Latresne near Bordeaux
Château Gassies is a gem of a reception venue located on the heights of Latresne, just five minutes from Bordeaux and fifty kilometers from the Bassin d’Arcachon and the Dune du Pyla.
Built in 1775 and recently renovated, this castle in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards is perfect for you to receive your wedding guests and organize your wedding party. With its fourteen hectares of land, Château Gassies overlooks Bordeaux and its region. The park, the terrace with a swimming pool, the reception room as well as the castle rooms will plunge you into a cozy and lush atmosphere.
Do you want to have a secular ceremony for your wedding? The castle offers the bride and groom a space dedicated to their ceremony under the century-old oaks of the park.
The Château Gassies also offers rooms for your guests and two cottages to fully enjoy your wedding weekend if you wish to take the time to relax afterwards!
Bohemian chic wedding organization | Mélissa Wilpotte wedding planner
As soon as I met Nadia and Jean-Paul, we got along! We had no trouble communicating, which is a very important point for me when I get a request for a wedding organization.
Nadia and Jean-Paul, our Bordeaux brides with a Tunisian origin for the bride, chose a bohemian chic wedding theme (or boho chic). Before calling me, Nadia and Jean-Paul had already contacted several providers. When I started organizing the wedding, I exchanged with those that the grooms had chosen and I helped them find the ones they missed.
I organized Nadia and Jean-Paul’s wedding with great pleasure because our agreement lasted throughout the entire organization of their marriage, that is to say 8 months.
The newlyweds were very accommodating and were seduced by my suggestions and my expertise as a wedding planner, which was a great relief for them.
Do you know what my favorite moment in all of this is? When the bride and groom show happiness and satisfaction during their wedding. I treasure the moment when I start observing them and their guests, as they fully enjoy this beautiful day. They do not have to worry about anything, since they rely on me.
That’s why I love my job. I love the fact that I can make you live and feel all the positive emotions of your marriage. My state of mind definitely matches the bohemian theme 😉
Festive and sunny wedding atmosphere
Once the civil ceremony and the religious ceremony were over, during which the newlyweds made their wedding vows, we went to the Château Gassies accompanied by the 135 guests under a crushing heat at the end of June!
The guests were able to discover this extraordinary place and enjoy the sunny terrace near the pool, while Christophe, our photographer, took photos of the couple and witnesses in the castle park.
Then everyone discovered the wedding dining room beautifully decorated by our bride Nadia, her witnesses and myself! The guests found it beautiful to the extent that it was decorated with class and sophistication. Once everybody was done enjoying the wedding meal, they all gathered on the dance floor!
The DJ hosted the evening and entertained the guests brilliantly. The newlyweds danced and partied with their friends and their families all night long! The exceptional weather of the day gave way to a clear and pleasant summer evening with a magnificent light on the Gassies castle.
Finally, fireworks amazed the lovers and beautiful lights were drawn in the guests’ eyes. Could it be any more romantic?
I would like to truly thank all the providers I cooperated with to organize the wedding of Nadia and Jean-Paul. Without them, the result would not have been the same!
